Czech Philharmonic Semyon Bychkov

Czech Philharmonic ⬩ Semyon Bychkov

When Richard Strauss composed his Burleske for piano and orchestra aged of 21, famous pianists called it excessively virtuosic and unplayable, but pianist Kirill Gerstein can definitely handle it. The piece will be an introduction to Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 5, a major work of the orchestral repertoire that never ceases to fascinate.
